NAME
     openpam_log -- log a message through syslog

LIBRARY
     Pluggable Authentication Module Library (libpam, -lpam)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <security/pam_appl.h>

     void

DESCRIPTION
     The openpam_log function logs messages using syslog(3).  It is primarily intended for inter-
     nal use by the library and modules.

     The level argument indicates the importance of the message.  The following levels are
     defined:

     PAM_LOG_DEBUG	 Debugging messages.  These messages are normally not logged unless the
			 global integer variable openpam_debug is set to a non-zero value, in
			 which case they are logged with a syslog(3) priority of LOG_DEBUG.

     PAM_LOG_VERBOSE	 Information about the progress of the authentication process, or other
			 non-essential messages.  These messages are logged with a syslog(3) pri-
			 ority of LOG_INFO.

     PAM_LOG_NOTICE	 Messages relating to non-fatal errors.  These messages are logged with a
			 syslog(3) priority of LOG_NOTICE.

     PAM_LOG_ERROR	 Messages relating to serious errors.  These messages are logged with a
			 syslog(3) priority of LOG_ERR.

     The remaining arguments are a printf(3) format string and the corresponding arguments.

SEE ALSO
